Preliminary information indicates the incident occurred after midnight Tuesday, when an officer from the Red Bank Police Department attempted to pull over a vehicle that failed to yield.
A chase then started and law enforcement officers with both the Soddy-Daisy Police Department and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office joined in the pursuit. The vehicle fled from officers into a private drive on Burchard Road in Soddy-Daisy. Officers followed the suspects into the woods. While attempting to arrest them, the suspects’ vehicle hit a Red Bank officer. That officer fired his weapon, hitting the female driver and male passenger.
Both suspects were taken to Erlanger Medical Center where the female driver died from her injuries. The male subject is currently in critical condition. The Red Bank officer was also treated for his injury and has been released from the hospital.
